SCRAP Creative Reuse organizing Ypsilanti scavenger hunt in October

YPSILANTI, Mich. – Get ready to race around Ypsilanti during the second annual Reuse Road Rally on Sunday, Oct. 23.

Participating teams will solve clues around Depot Town and downtown Ypsi between 2-5 p.m. as they compete to win gift cards to SCRAP Creative Reuse, prizes from local businesses and $100 in SCRAP dollars.

Teams are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes during the game.

“We are excited to host our second Road Rally! Last year’s participants had such a good time and really got into crafting their mascots. We want to keep bringing these fun events to our community. Combining #creativereuse with an appreciation for our Ypsilanti community!” said SCRAP Creative Reuse Director Claire Tyra.

Reuse Road Rally tickets cost $15 each. Get the details here.
